Little By Little

I had a spare moment to lay my rug down and photograph the progress of the hit and miss border.  When you are working on a big piece, it is always helpful to lay it out every once in a while and step back and take a good look at it.  I am very happy with the way the border is turning out and I don't see anything that needs adjusting so I am going to keep hooking!
I love the way the small stripes have given this design a lively twist.  The colors also pull your eye out to the edge of the rug.  For the mix of colors, I used all the colors that were used in the center design, plus added a few more that weren't used at all but blend nicely with the overall color plan.
I look forward to sitting down at my frame every night and working on the border...I always want to see what the next color will look like as I hook in the stripes.
